Only ten of the major state-managed prisons in Florida have air-conditioning in some portion of the facility housing inmates, and many of these are in South Florida. Prisons do not have cable television. However, television privileges provide a valuable management tool to influence inmate behavior and serve to eliminate inmate idleness. The Department maintains televisions for general inmate use in dayrooms. Local channel broadcast signals are received through antennas.
